Matt Hancock left I’m A Celebrity viewers both in hysterics and ‘cringing’ last night after he was seen ‘struggling’ in a camp bonding session.
The show’s stars received luxury items following the successful completion of a task.
And it turned out football fave Jill’s pick was to have ‘Sweet Caroline’ played three times.
Lyrics from the Neil Diamond track were regularly bellowed as part of celebrations for the Lionesses’ Euro championships win over the summer.
‘It was just lovely to sing that song’
Within moments of Jill revealing her luxury pick, the popular tune started to sound through the camp.
Most of the campmates immediately sprung to their feet, and raised their hands for a singalong.
She later reflected in the Bush Telegraph: “It was just lovely to sing that song around the campfire, to hear music.
“And for me personally it brings back so many great memories.”
Jill caused several of her co-stars to crack up as the anthem began, admitting: “I don’t actually know all the words.”
But as Matt Hancock was seen bobbing along to the music, seemingly unaware of the lyrics and clapping off the beat, it was the politician who viewers ended up laughing at.
How viewers reacted
Many of those who tweeted about the “uncomfortable” moment during Thursday’s (November 10) episode included lots of laughing emojis in their posts.
“Matt Hancock doesn’t know the words to Sweet Caroline does he? #ImACeleb,” one observer claimed on social media.
